Coming together nicely though a few more thoughts came to mind when reading
this. Only significant one is whether we are better with decimal scaling
than percentage scaling for consistency with channel scales etc?

in_voltageY_dither_en would be more consistent with existing ABI naming.

Given this one is self defining and may well get generalized to other devices I'd
got with a description that doesn't provide values.

Returns possible scalings as percentages.

However, thinking more on this it's a bit inconsistent with other scale values we have
which are given in decimal.  Would "1 0.75 0.5 0.25" work as well here?

As above, I'm don't really see an advantage in providing the values.  Any userspace
ought to cope with any (finding out what is there via _available).
"Scales the dither before it is applied to the selected channel.  1 corresponds
to no scaling".

Please fill in the expected kernel version.  I'll fix it if this happens to merge near
the change over in a cycle, but it's easier to fix something that is there
than to add it from scratch :)
